Remember a while back I told you about the security incident at my house? I said in the article that we were going to get another dog, one that would be better in terms of a guard dog or watch dog. We did that, but it led to some unexpected consequences.
In today’s episode of the Expat Answerman Videocast, I start out by telling about what happened with our dog, and I also go into information about the Davao City Dog Pound. I am not certain, but I doubt that many cities around the Philippines even have a dog pound.
After talking about dogs, dog pounds and such, I go into a question from Steven. Steven has been having some banking problems. He received Veterans benefits from the US Government, and he has been unable to cash his check here in the Philippines. I have some solutions that Steven might want to look into to resolve the situation. Tune in and get the answers, especially if you also get US Government checks and need to make the money available to you here in the Philippines.
In the video, I said that I was going to give a list of Philippine Banks that accept US Government direct deposits. Here is that list (including the amount they charge for accepting the direct deposit):
Allied Banking Corporation – $3.00
Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) – $3.00
Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP) – $5.00
Land Bank of the Philippines – $5.00
Maybank – $3.00
Philippine Veterans Bank (PVB) – $3.00
China Bank – $3.00
RCBC – $3.00 to $5.00
Banco de Oro – Unknown
Bank of Commerce (BOC) – $5.00 to $7.00
Manila Bank – $1.00
Security Bank – $5.00
United Coconut Planters Bank (UCPB) – $4.00 to $6.00
Metrobank – $3.00
Philippine National Bank – $7.00
Can you help me?
That would help me out a lot, and I would appreciate it greatly!
